    I would start by buying the software to program it. I use RT Systems software and get the repeater information from RepeaterBook.com. I almost never program a radio directly unless it is one channel I am programming. I have an IC-7100, don’t know how similar it is to an IC-9100. It looks like the IC-9100 also has a USB interface and if so, all you need is the RT Systems software and you are good to program away.

    I have done a lot more reading on this subject and one of the best articles I found was “Power, Grounding, Bonding, and Audio for Ham Radio” at http://www.audiosystemsgroup.com/publish.htm He explains about lightning strikes and RFI and hum in general and what is the best way to bond your grounds together.

    I am going to get some heavy grounding wire. I need 100 feet but the price at Home Depot for 100 feet of #8 wire ($.59/foot) is almost twice the price per foot for 500 feet ($.31/foot) . Would anyone else like to share part of a 500 foot spool? I need about 100 feet.
